I recently bought 2 RCA Viking Pro 10.1" tablets for my girls. They were using my work Tablet to play Roblox using an XBOX 360 controller. So I seen on YouTube that you can also connect the game controller to a Tablet by simply using a USB OTG. So I bought 2 OTG's, connected them to the tablet with the game controller and no power at all, they didn't work. I know the OTG is good because I plugged it into my LG phone and the controller works fine. I've read somewhere that RCA tablets Micro USB can only be used to charge battery. Because the regular USB 2.0 works fine if I plug in a mouse.

So my question is to anyone that has had this experience or knows a way to go around it. How do I get either an XBOX 360 or PS4 game controller to work on this RCA Tablet? I heard something about ROOTING it, but I'm not familiar with it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

So far to my understanding, many people are finding the Viking Pro 10.1 (RCA/RCT6303W87M) is not accessable via USB or otherwise. It seems that RCA has turned off USB access in it's programing therefore blocking any attempts to flash a custom ROM and Recovery. It may be possible to root the device by downloading Kingoroot to a flash drive and plug it into the USB port and then loading it into the RCA tablet. However, I have yet to try this. The reasons I haven't so far is because I can't find any firmware that will install without bricking the device.
I can't post a link as of yet, but just look up kingoroot (NOT KINGROOT), which may or may not Root the device. BE ADVISED, I have not tried it, so don't know what results you may get.

Evidently Kingoroot worked rather well. I took the apk and placed it on an sd card, then slipped it into of course. Pulled up the file and click to install. been in there for a while now with no problems. Current difficulty? No ROMs or programs available. However, I'm going to dig around in it and see what I can do. First thing is to replace the MTK/OTG with an adequate USB serial. At least I'm in it. And this things missing a lot..
